Derek Fisher files for divorce from his wife Candace Fisher in Los Angeles Wednesday night.

Derek Fisher cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, according to TMZ.

On the couple’s wedding anniversary they seemed to still be smitten with one another. Fisher even praised his wife on his Instagram page, which leaves many wondering what could have gone wrong in such little time.

“She has changed the way I view life and what’s most important to me. Life would not be the same without my queen. PERIOD!!!” Fisher wrote.

Derek Fisher, 40, and his wife married on Feb. 19, 2005. They have four children, including their twins Tatum and Drew. Their other two children are from previous relationships, The New York Post reports.

Fisher seems to want to settle the divorce fairly. He asked for joint legal and physical custody of the children and wants to spilt the legal costs with Candace, TMZ notes.

“This is a difficult time for me personally. For the sake of our children, I ask that everyone respects our privacy during this process,” Fisher said in a statement.
